It’s been a tough week for attorney Lin Wood. Booted from Twitter, fired by his high profile client Nicholas Sandmann, and now this one.
In a telegram to “My Followers” the lawyer wrote: “I fight on every front. The State Bar of Georgia told me today that they would require me to undergo a mental health exam if I wanted to keep my legal license. My mind is sane. I didn’t break any rules. I asked what I was doing wrong, I was just told that it was my social media comments. My speech.”
Oh well. Wood’s speech included several tweets attacking Chief Justice Roberts as a pedophile killer who was previously informed of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death.
“My information from reliable sources is that Roberts arranged for Jeffrey Epstein to illegally adopt two young children from Wales,” he tweeted in December, and later added, “Before attacking me, fair people might ask Roberts the truth first to say. Or ask Jeffrey Epstein. He’s alive. “
His former legal partners say he suffers from megalomania and thinks he may be the born again Jesus.
“I could actually be Christ coming back for the second time in the form of an imperfect man and raising awareness of Christ,” Law & Crime quoted from the company’s legal battle after the implosion. “Does that make you get a little cold? Who would be more eloquent to say what God’s will is, God’s faith in me. “
“I try to lead a principled life. There is no basis for the bar’s claim. But do I choose my battles carefully? “Asks the lawyer who recently wrote about Parler:” Prepare the firing squads. Pence goes first. “and called the former vice president a” child molester “.
How crazy do you have to be when Parler censors you? No idea! Ask Lin Wood!
Reuters reporter Jan Wolfe confirmed to Sarah Coole, Chief Operating Officer of the State Bar of Georgia that the attorney had been asked to undergo a mental health exam, but declined to say whether the bar made the request spontaneous or as a result had made a complaint.
As with his Quixotic attempt to overthrow the election, Wood remains defiant. He plans to “spend some time tonight speaking to my perfect father and best friend to ask what he would like to do about these attacks.” At the same time, he vows to keep fighting and writes, “I don’t think God has brought me this far to stop fighting now. I know he instilled a spirit of fear in me, and I know I’ve never been a quitter. “
Quitter? Try NUTTER.
We hope he gets the help he needs.
